What's it about?
THE HUMAN BODY BY TINYBOP lets kids get a peek inside the body with seven models that highlight important structures such as bones, lymph nodes, the heart, and the intestines. Kids can see how smelling flowers or being bitten by a mosquito sets off reactions that cause the brain to process sensory information. The heart beats, eyes synthesize visual information, and food digests. Kids can record audio observations or questions on each page.
Is it any good?
This series of interactive models is an up-close and relevant way for kids to learn the senses and systems of the body. Younger kids can simply use free play to see what happens when they tap, swipe, or move elements on the screen -- for example, eating food and brushing teeth. More advanced learners can read and learn formal names of body parts (such as "red blood cells" and "white blood cells") and record audio questions and observations. Kids who need more directed play may not feel comfortable and would benefit from a download of the free activity handbook. Beautiful models with creative interactivity help them learn about what's under the skin they're living in.
